By far, my favorite book of the year was The Snow Child, by Eowyn Ivey. It's a great fiction read for winter, so go get yourself a copy now!
I also loved The Dressage Chronicles by Karen McGoldrick (I also read one of the sequels). This is probably not going to go over well with readers unless they are horse enthusiasts, but I enjoyed it so much.
I actually read a book for the second time this year, which is unusual for me. Last time I read it I was about twelve years old. My grandfather recommended it to me. House of a Thousand Lanterns by Victoria Holt. It did not disappoint. I was surprised by what a great read this was.
Finally, a nonfiction read. The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel, about a hermit that lived in the Maine woods alone for over 20 years.
Readers, do you have any books you want to recommend for me in 2018?
